Welcome to the Night

A great philosopher once said, “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light.”

Actually it was Albus Dumbledore. And we applaud him for that statement because it is inspiring and wise. But the goal of this little slice of internet is to find inspiration in the darkness. We will be writing short stories inspired by the most goose-bump-inducing art, poetry, and music we can find. We invite you to join us four times a month for tales that find happiness (and lots of other things — things with claws and teeth) in shadows. Cimmerian Tales is leaving the lights off.

Welcome to Cimmerian Tales. We hope you brought a flashlight!

Jen, Anne, Julie, Audrey, and Rebecca

Posting schedule:

Mondays – one writer will post a short story inspired by our shared prompt.
Wednesdays – one writer will talk about a book, or books, or music, or anything in the art realm that they’re enjoying.
Fridays – one writer will post anything they want. It’s No Rules Friday!
Months with five weeks – all the writers will join a group discussion on writing craft in the final week.
